The 3700kms Solo Biking Adventure – Full Log

My bike ‘Amitiel’ was close to being 1..
and my mom’s birthday was near too.

Infact, on same date.

Thought it would be a nice adventure to go visit my mom.
It had to be a surprise.. so she didn’t know I was coming. If she did then well… this log wouldn’t exist 😛
Only 1 problem – She lives 3 states across .. 1800+ kms.

Hmm… is that a challenge?
A very few people knew that I was going to do this. Some of them called me Crazy! May be I am 🙂

So here goes.. trip log of my ~3700 kms bike touring SOLO.
Mountains, Valleys, Worlds 2nd largest lagoon, 2 jungles, twisties, and what not….. husshhh.. lets not give away all details so soon 🙂

I’ll try to keep it small 🙂 .. I know I have the bad habit of writing huge paragraphs and paragraphs of lord knows what I write 🙂 
And I’ll write this in parts, for legibility and time constrains and to maintain flow of the journey.

So let’s start with the trip map…. or the one that was initially planned at-least 😀

Note, that the ‘places to visit’ is split between ‘onward’ and ‘return’ journey on same path.

Map Section 1 :

Map split part 1

Map Section 2 :

Map Section 3:

Map split part 3

Oh well, that was THE PLAN, but execution had something else in mind for me 🙂

I’d like to thank ‘ravi@17bhp’ and ‘jaijeet’ for the gifts (bungee cords).. they were immensely helpful.

One would think, that there would be trouble “during” the journey… but troubles started in a funny way for me even before it 🙂

1. Losing my balaclava: Maid had hung it on terrace after wash and someone thought it’s cool to just take it. Had to do a last moment run to get one more.

New M1 balaclava.

2. Packing Up: Oh darn darn darn… this thing is so tough.
Somehow managed to dump and push all my stuff learning from this guy. And the bag was pretty much tight by then.

So what seems to be the problem? The problem! is that after packing I remember that I have gifts for my mom and my cousin that I brought from Singapore.. there is no way I’m going without that!
To give you a perspective, that’s 3 ladies handbags (2 big sized and 1 medium) Yikes!

I did not give up.. with all the training from my home hung boxing bag.. I punched those bags inside my tail bag .. somehow. 😛

Phew! packed up.... Oh wait... gifts not packed yet :(

And that’s it… I was ready to go 🙂
More write up coming soon… meanwhile I hope you enjoy this preview video 😀

Vroom Vrooooom… to a lake near Wildlife Sanctuary, Medak

A biker pal needed couple of video shoots done at a particular location, and we decided to join him[Dhiraj] and see if we can be helpful in anyway.
So three of us, drove away to this beautiful location and amidst the video shooting we managed to get some supercool still photographs 🙂 .. Thanks to Vinfred who was slaving off behind the camera. 😐

The lake wasn’t overflowing but still was beautiful.
(I’ll try to put a pic of another biker[Ravi] who’s been there in monsoon when lake overflows.. pretty awesome)

Here’s couple of pics for my blog readers and as usual the full album is available on Facebook. <– Click to see

Machines Resting at the verge of valley at the lake.

Ok..  NOW swim anyone? :) Btw, that's "Xenochrophis piscator" or "Checkered KeelBack". Man, if I wasn't living in India ... I'd definitely have snake pets (Will write another post someday about which snakes I'd like to have as pets). Note:  Snake as pet is illegal in India.

All that touring on a Sports Bike that is meant for track racing..... definitely asking for body stretching.

Now, for pics from Ravi’s album (when the lake was overflowing):
Note: Following two pictures are copyrighted to Ravi Varma. I am using them with his permission.

Beautiful isn't it? You see people cautiously walking there... well you can drive your bike there, but you need to be extra cautious. A tiny slip and you'd be inside the lake with your bike (minimum depth 25 feet)  :D

Now this is Ravi's classic signature move ...  Everywhere he goes touring, he finds a waterbody to wash his bike :) Play in water anyone?  I'll definitely go again during monsoon :D

Pinning my hikes/travels on Everplaces now…

It was getting rather clumsy to maintain a list of places I’ve been to, list of places I want to be at and other stuff on Google presentation.

Moving them to Everplaces.com slowly (as and when I find time)
The site is slow but I like the interface.
Added 6 places as of now, visited 2 of them already. 🙂

Here’s my profile – https://everplaces.com/heartbrokenbiker/

Stay tuned.. I’m gonna go places. 😉

The Heart Broken Biker – Vlog 009 – DoomsDay, Shit just got Real!

Everyone who has made fun of the DoomsDay will learn to believe after this rare footage.
Shit just got real! 😉

Don’t be a Sinner like me… I have realised…. Believe it you Fools… Dont be a Sinner.. Believe it!

 

P.S: Didn’t want to do a vlog on this, but something hit me in the last moment and I picked up the camera and did a quick one.

P.P.S: Reality Check.. DoomsDay isn’t here yet.
Destructions have happened in Real World and will keep happening
… 21 Dec 2012 has nothing to do with mark of new destructions.
World might eventually end someday thousands/millions of years later or may not.
Get ya lazy ass back to Work. 🙂
